With Georgia having a new QB and Boise returning everyone of significance, it sets up for Boise to go to Oregon State the following week looking to knock off two top major conference foes. They could easily be the Utah of 2005.
I've become a big Boise and Fresno State fan in the last couple of seasons, mainly because in their search for respect, they've been willing to go anywhere and play anyone at any time. Fresno takes on USC @ USC this year, which should be another fun one.
Gotta love the MAC too, right?
Sept. 3 the MAC is sending 3 of its "big 4" into the 3 toughest places to play in the Big Ten:
Miami at Ohio St.
Bowling Green at Wisconsin
Northern Illinois at Michigan
Better yet, later in the year BGSU travels to Boise and Toledo faces Fresno St.
And Miami just signed a home and home with Boise in 2009/2010.
Gotta love when the best "mid-majors" play each other.
